In automotive it is pretty much a standard requirement to have all Your items (both purchased and produced) listed in the IMDS (International Material Data System). To make it easier for You to find Your parts in the system You can now record the IMDS id to the item master data in Petkafy.
It can benefit You in several internal activities as well, because the number is needed when dealing with automotive customers in some APQP documents, but mostly while filling in material related documents and the PSW. It would be painful to search for the number from the IMDS each time You need it.
Recording the IMDS ID is also good for Petkafy’s future functions, because from now on Petkafy will know what items of Yours are missing the IMDS ID and can be made to remind it to Your purchasing, sales or quality responsibles to have the item MDS taken care of.
